*There is just too much hate & sadness going on in the world today so I’ve decided to do a 5-part T-pisode series about my own personal keys to happiness in this crazy thing we call life.
One of the things I’ve been preaching more and more with age is that I don’t have time for nor do I want anyone or anything that brings any sort of drama into my life. At my age I don’t have time for drama. I’m pretty sure I’ve tweeted that? Hmmm. When you grow up in a heavy drama filled environment you end up one of two ways. You either become someone who enjoys and continues to create and dwell in drama or you become someone who wants absolutely nothing to do with drama. I fall into the latter.
I hate drama. Drama sucks the happiness out of life. We all know the people who cause drama. Drama at work. Drama in relationships. Drama on Facebook. Drama when they call you. Drama when they text you. Drama when you see them at family parties twice a year. Drama, drama, drama. And drama is the EXACT opposite of any key to happiness!!! TRUST ME! Drama takes the joy out of everything by causing you to waste your time, feelings and energy on misdirection. One key to happiness? AVOID FUCKING DRAMA. We know drama when we see it. Don’t lie to yourself. It is almost always avoidable. Case in point… When someone in my family causes drama every time I see them? Guess what? I stop seeing them. Yep. When suddenly a woman I’m dating ups and causes me drama just because she wants to or enjoys it or doesn’t know how to communicate with me? I end it. I stop the drama before it sucks the happiness out of my life. I avoid drama. I don’t chase drama. I don’t cause drama. We all watch TV shows and movies and crazy people on social media living out drama. That is entertaining because it’s not happening to you but when it happens to you, it’s not fun. It’s not entertaining. We are all too familiar with drama so you should do your absolute best to avoid it if you really want to be happy. Drama destroys all things happy. Remember that. Know that. Respect that.
The next time you see drama’s ugly head coming over the horizon make sure to run. DO NOT confront drama. That’s what it wants you to do. I’m all about confronting problems and fighting to get your point across but you can’t beat drama. The people who live in that fog of despair will only suck you in. They thrive in it. They embrace the phrase “misery loves company.” So avoid them. Avoid it. No drama is one of the most important keys to happiness and I know this from first hand experience. You’re welcome.
Until next time. Always take it there.
